Syrian troops blocked a US military convoy in the north-east of Syria
DAMASCUS, (BM) – The Syrian army and local residents blocked the movement of the American military convoy in the province of Al-Hasek in the north-east of Syria, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Syrian agency SANA.
SAA troops and residents of the village of Hama did not allow the convoy to pass and forced the Americans to turn around. It is specified that the American convoy consisted of 11 units of military equipment.
Recall that on March 17 an attempt by the Russian military to enter the area located behind the large Syrian city of Tel Tamr, was blocked by several units of American armored vehicles, forcing the Russians to leave the area.
Two days later on March 19 the Arab media outlet Al-Masdar reports that Russia has sent a huge convoy to northern Syria against US military.
The task of this convoy has been to ensure unhindered passage of Russian military equipment to the eastern part of the Arab Republic.
As the BulgarianMilitary.com wrote, the situation in Syria sharply worsened after 33 Turkish troops died on the territory of the country.
In response, the Turkish authorities announced a military operation. As a result of negotiations between the Presidents of Turkey and Russia, it was decided to introduce a cessation of hostilities regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
On March 5, the presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, entered into an agreement according to which a ceasefire regime entered into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would be able to use force.
After that, Ankara sharply increased its military contingent in the region and launched the operation “Spring Shield” to push the Syrian troops. Turkey is also supported by militants loyal to it.
